I just compared this to my SBD>D>C>D and it is very muffled. I will work on and release my copy soon.

Subject: great pre-drums
Pre-drums was was raining in Sac(usually very dry)and the Dead acknowledged the rain by opening the second set with Cold,rain,snow>box of Rain>LL Rain>(your rain falls like)Crazy fingers.When you got a ticket to Cal-Expo the water slide on the property was included in the admission.Big Fun.They stopped doing it after this year because,as a call Expo employee told me,"LSD and water slides can get dangerous"

Not all of us can hear the diff., unfortunately. Not even matrix here boys. Anyone want my coaster copies?

Subject: BT Wind
I got really eneamored with the BT Wind from this show back in '91 when I got my first copy of it. the whole show is pretty solid throughout.

I would agree that this is probably a matrix and not a pure board though. There is also some major static in the Knockin.

Not a soundboard, maybe a matrix? Not too crisp and not as good as my dat>cass>dat soundboard. The first set was not available from that source thoug. Somewhat of a disappointment.

Subject: Great show, but needs a fix...
This was a great show. I think I had a melt-down during the Estimated and thought the band and audience had turned into a giant green catapillar.

The few few seconds of Cold Rain and Snow seem to be cut. Also, the pre-Cold Rain had Bruce playing a few bars of "Rain drops keep fallin on my head" as a nod to the rain (very rare in CA). Could someone please splice in the lost music?

Us tapers were pretty unprepared for rain considering the time of year. Some of us managed to scrap-up garbage bags to cover our mic's. My tape (from the tapers section) turned out like crap, due to constant wind gusts. I've since heard an FOB which also was plagued by wind gusts, so this soundboard is much appreciated! Great setlist and, from what I recall, inspired performance.
